“Glow is the essence of beauty,” Estée Lauder once said. If you want a beautiful glowing skin, you should always include a powerful serum in your beauty routine. Advanced Night Repair has been Estée Lauder’s best-selling product for 35 years. I’ve used several bottles of it and I’ve always been very happy with the results: it contains a very good mix of vitamin- and plant-based antioxidants. This year, Estée Lauder launches a new anti-ageing product that is as powerful as a serum: Perfectionist Pro Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment Acetyl Hexapeptide-8. Curious to know more about it? I tested Estee Lauder’s new super serum for two weeks.
The breakdown in collagen as skin ages results in loss of plumpness, density and overall facial shape definition. Known as one of the most powerful actives to help re-build this key scaffolding protein, the precision-engineered peptide Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 promotes skin’s natural production of collagen-I, the crucial protein found in over 85% of facial skin.
Packaged in a metallic-coloured opaque bottle topped with a pump dispenser, this serum-like treatment takes a holistic approach to firming and lifting skin including three critical zones – cheeks, jawline and nasolabial folds. It addresses the visible loss of elasticity and skin sagging with a powerful blend of actives, including star ingredient, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, providing high-performance, rapid, visible results: skin is more hydrated and feels firmer.
I TESTED ESTEE LAUDER’S NEW SUPER SERUM
The light and slightly pearlescent serum applies beautifully. Due to the amount of silicone it contains, it feels very silky and sets to a smooth, slightly hydrating finish that instantly softens and smoothes the look of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid hydrates skin which looks more cushioned as light reflecting optics create instant luminosity. It layers well with other products and is the perfect primer for your foundation.
The formula is packed with antioxidants and other anti-ageing ingredients, including plant-derived hydrators, soothing agents, and skin-restoring peptides. Alpha hydroxy acids and n-acetyl glucosamine support skin’s natural turnover and exfoliation process to help resurface skin.
The skin feels so hydrated that in summer you can even skip a day cream if you don’t have dry skin. The skin also feels more supple and plumped.
Perfectionist Pro Rapid Firm + Lift Treatment Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a great serum-like treatment that I definitely recommend for people aged 28+.
According to the press release, in just 14 days, skin feels firmer, and facial contours, including jawline and cheeks and stubborn laugh lines (otherwise known as nasolabial folds), look more lifted and defined. As a beauty editor, I recommend that you see a dermatologist or dermatological surgeon if you have deep wrinkles, sagging skin and nasolabial folds. Sagging is often due to bone loss. That’s why only cosmetic surgery and non-invasive tightening procedures (laser, fillers etc.) can solve the problem.
